Dividing Lawsuit awards with siblings
If your mother dies (divorced) and one child sues a company for neglect and wins, how is the award divided or is it, with the other three siblings?
My mother and I have not heard from them for 20 years and do not know where in the United States they live (by thier own choice). Unable to locate even at time of death to notify them.

If someone dies, their estate can rightfully
sue for any wrongs done to the deceased during
their lifetime. The beneficiaries of the estate,
if there is no Will, are usually the surviving
spouse and children.
